It has been a month since our last edition and quite a few
things have happened on campus. There .‘^eems to be a new
quest for freedom and school spirit on the Gardner-Webb cam
pus. Before discussing these events, however, I would like to
bring out a few facts on mvself. I have been accused of at
tempting to start a revolution on the campus, and of trying
to look big by trying to get a better Gardner-Webb for the
students. However, I would like for both the student body
and the faculty to know that this is wrong. I have only tried
to bring out the things that need to be improved for the
betterment of the school and the people who will be coming
here in the following years. Most of the people that have
accused me of these things have not stopped to realize that I
myself will not benefit because this is my last year. I hope
this clears up any misunderstanding
that has taken place in the minds
of many of the faculty and students.
Still, I will fight for what I believe
in, and for what my fellow students
While talking around campus with
the students I have come up with
many of the opini
toward certain things on Gardner-
Webb campus. In the following
months I will discuss these, but it
wUl be the STUDENT'S ideas, even
though some might go along with
things I have stood up for.
There has been a big discussion
over the food problem. However,
getting better food in the wrong
method. Signs and things of that
nature only waste good time. It was
good to see the students act as men
and women and meet the faculty
face-to-face with this problem. At
the meeting held for the discussion
of this, many good points were
brought out by the students. Many
worth while suggestions were also
brought out. One of the main
points brought out was that another
Baptist junior college near
a better choice of food, the student
enrollment is less, and the cost per
year is less. It was said that eggs
and toast, etc., could not be kept
warm for as many students as we
have. The students again had an
answer for this in that the armed
students services feed around 300 each morn
ing, and not one man has cold eggs
or toast. The “sack lunch" which
the students get for Sunday night
was brought out, and of course all
the students know what the view
was on this. Another main point
brought out was that the best ad
vertising agent for a college is a stu
dent that goes there. Ninety-nine
per cent of the student body believe
that the food problem here at Gard
ner-Webb is one of two main things
that keep students from coming
back, and new ones coming. Of
course the other is restrictions.
The faculty know that they have
a problem, and that it is the feeling
all over campus. How they will
meet this problem is now up to
them, as the students have taken
"TO HELP YOU"
By Joseph Godwin
Education presests a challenge and young people are ris
ing to meet that challenge. Of the students on Gardner-Webb
campus, more have expressed a desire toward the teaching
profession than toward any other calling.
That is a healthy sign. Classrooms are overcrowded in
America’s public schools. If the average size of the American
classroom were reduced by five students (to relieve over
crowding) an additional 200,0"0 teachers would be needed at
once. These cannot be had; they are not available.
School teachers are underpaid but
their lot is constantly being improv
ed. The quality of teachers, gener
ally, makes up for their lack of
money. On an average, a school
teacher is as good a risk as a bank
With the rise in salary, there is
coming — and have come — higher
academic requirements for the
school teacher. Almost never do we
find a person without a four-year
degree being certified to teach
school. It should be thus. Many
states have, as a standard, the mas
ter's degi-ee requirement—as a goal.
The two greatest areas of educa
tional opportunity are in elementary
schools and in colleges and univer
sities. The reasons are simple. Many
teachers do not want to teach in
the grades; and by the time a per
son is well enough prepared to teach

The contestants in the Miss Gard
ner-Webb Contest entered the gym
and walked the distance from the
door to the decorated platform. As
the girls walked down the palm-
decked runway to the middle of the
platform, the judges — Mrs. Joe
Beckham, Society Editor for the
Cleveland Times, Mr. Horace Carter,
Vice-President of the First National
Bank of Shelby, ard Mr. Tom New
comb, radio announcer for WBBO in
Forest City—checked the contestants
on their charm, poise and grace.
Larry James, a sophomore from El
kin, who was master of ceremonies
for the occasion, introduced the con
testants as they appeared.
The judges had a difficult task in
choosing a winner from the nine- ^
teen contestants. They finally pick
ed six semi-finalists, who were:
Paula Winstead, Dottle Hudson.
Shirley Greene, Sylvia Starnes.,
Becky Allen and Peggy Jo Puett, and
from the six semi-finalists came the
winner and the two runners-up.
Miss Doris Jones, the Dean of
Women at Gardner-Webb, was in
charge of the event, and she cer
tainly deserves a vote of thanks for
the planning and presentation of the
Miss Gardner-Webb Contest.
